It’s an interesting match up on Saturday afternoon at Peden Stadium in Athens, Ohio. The Kanasas Jayhawks will try not to lose to the second MAC team in as many weeks when they take on the Ohio Bobcats.
These two teams have faced off twice in their history and the Bobcats have won both of the games. In the last game in 2016 the Bobcats won by a final score of 37-21.
This year was supposed to be different for the Kansas Jayhawks. This was supposed to be the year they took the big step forward and that all the rebuilding they have had to go through finally paid off.
After the week one victory the Jayhawks and their fans were really excited and bought in to the hype. But after week one all that hype went downhill pretty quick, and all the doubt came by way of the Central Michigan Chippewas.
They were dominated from basically the opening kickoff on the way to a 45-27 loss. The defense seemed to reverted to the defense of old and the Chippewas had no issue moving the ball up and down the field.
On the offensive side of the ball one of the issues was quarterback Peyton Bender who has already thrown four interceptions through two weeks.
Against the Chippewas he threw for 323 yards, but made two costly interceptions when the team was driving and it really flipped around the momentum quickly.
To win this game it’s going to start with Bender. He needs to be better wit the ball, and mot make such costly turnovers.
If he does start throwing interceptions in this one, it could be a long night for the Jayhawks and their fans.
On the other side of this match up is the Ohio Bobcats who’s season as has been a tail of two weeks. The first game they dominated Hampton winning by a final score of 59-0.
But in week two the story was different. They played a much improved Purdue Boilermakers team and lost by a final score of 44-21.
The Bobcats couldn’t slow down the pass or the rush and it led to the big blowout.
Sophomore quarterback Nathan Rourke got the start in game two and he looked really good even in a loss. He threw for 224 yards and one touchdown.
To win this game Rourke just needs to play his game and not turn the ball over. If he can make smart decisions he can move the ball all over the Jayhawks defense.
